When you set out to buy a home, you usually create a list of “must-haves”: it must have at least three bedrooms, a dedicated laundry room, a master suite, etc. 

One thing you might not think to add to your must-have list is a bonus room: a room that can turn into a playroom for the kids when they’re young, an office so you can work from home whenever you feel like it, a home theater so you can enjoy a movie while saving a few bucks, or anything else you can think of.

Whatever your needs may be, we found nine homes that come with one or more bonus rooms. So take a look and let your imagination decide how to best use these spaces.
